Where is the vmkcore?

Ex.
My ESX server just puked and I need to find where is the vm core dump file resides to figure out what happened?

Now I haven't performed all of these functions yet to test the validity but I found some different pieces of the puzzle for the post mordem.

1. Start with, from the service console, fdisk -l to find the VMware VMKCORE partition or type esxcfg-dumppart -l to show the active and configured Dump Partition.
2. vSphere 4 uses esxcfg-dumppart -L to display the log file.
(ESX 3 uses the vmkdump command instead)
